We use advanced risk analytics powered by proprietary algorithms and over 15 years of loan performance data to efficiently and effectively score our customers' loan applications. From January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2018, we extended over $17.1 billion in total credit across approximately 43.8 million total loans.
CURO was founded in 1997 to meet the growing needs of underbanked consumers looking for access to credit. With more than 20 years of experience, we seek to offer a variety of convenient, easily-accessible financial and loan services across all of our markets.
